This really is not a .NET related question.
I *THINK* it falls under the HTML section since it is cross-browser troubles with markup code. Or possibly just a security setting turned off in your FF.
I moved it there anyway, hopefully it's the right place.

Part of the problem is that there is no such thing as <object>, it's not part of the standard, so modern browsers use <embed> while IE uses <object>. Some of the attributes you use are also not part of the standard. So there must be adjustments for this to work in modern browsers.

Look at this page for an explanation.
